The Government Took the Time to Prove that Americans Really Love Pizza

1 minute read

There are few things as universally adored and decidedly non-divisive as pizza. But even though we all know how much everyone loves to eat pizza, the United States government still went ahead and put together a report detailing just how much we love it and just how much we’re eating it. Here are some of the key findings:

  • 13 percent of Americans eat pizza on any given day
  • A quarter of males ages 6-18 eat pizza on any given day
  • For those who eat pizza on any given day, it accounts for 25 percent (among kids) and 29 percent (among adults) of daily energy intake
  • The people who eat the least amount of pizza are women ages 60 and over
  • Overall, men are eating pizza much more frequently than women
  • The most important finding, though? Pizza was, is and always will be delicious.
